Custom spotlight brackets V1K 2016
« on: December 05, 2017, 01:30:45 PM »
Decided to fabricate a set of spotlight holders / mounts for the Versys 1000 2016. The bike is so naked without spotlights. So I went to my regular back water foundry and fabricated these.

May 2017
The bracket and their nut holders per say.


The mount on the front. The mount holes on the bike is too large and thus I had to put another piece of metal at the end of the bolt I have to secure it all in place.




The spotlights.


The end product


December 2017

Decided to strengthen the bracket by extending to the rear mounts as well. Realised that at rough roads the spotlights shake a quite a bit.





Side view




The clearance from the fork to the extended bracket.


The finished product, all mods under the skin.


The product is rough but heck, its functional and its black.

Total cost of the brackets ( metal, fabrication and paint ) = USD 15.00

Nuff said. Ride safe peeps...

I would stick a couple of rubber grommets in both ends of the bar and run the cable through the bar. Just to tidy it up a bit.

I would probably not have them quite so wide either but hay, they certainly look fit for purpose good job  :37:
